Between Violet and Green by Megan Mueller and Samuel Scharf

585 East Colorado Boulevard
Between Violet and Green is a site-specific art installation of 360 rectangular solar powered lights arranged in rows in the ground. The design highlights the natural contours of the site and draws the viewer toward the entry of Pasadena Presbyterian Church. The concept of the work is to harness the sun’s energy by day and “play it back” it as a dynamic feature by night. Sunshine is one of California’s greatest natural resources and in the work, plays a key role.
